The weather was good today, so time to try and take the little Dynamic up to Courchevel. Taxying out. Wonder if anyone else is going to visit LFLJ? Here we go! Bye bye Chambery. Just turn left into the valley. What a grand day for VFR in the French Alps! ...and a right turn into the next but one valley.. ..sorry about the light bloom - it does that with the sunlight to the rear of the plane, I don't think the dome light was on. Onward to Courchevel! Meribel on the nose, just follow the valley as it curves left, making sure I'm above 6500 feet at least! Looking good... ish. Is that really a runway?? :Nail Biting: Touchdown! had to apply lots of power to get the Dynamic to crest the hill! Need more practice as does me trying to land on centrelines! :Whistle: Anyway, safe & sound at the top. Time to go and enjoy the view with an expensive coffee or hot chocolate! Thanks for viewing!
Having flown a 757 in an unorthodox approach to LFLB, it was time to get the little WT-9 Dynamic over to Chambery with a view to taking it up to Courchevel, weather depending. I'd already flown the Dynamic from the UK to France. I believe she's actually got the range to go from Blackpool to Chambery in one go....just! - it's only about 600nm! However, I didn't want to set up a 6 hour or so flight! So I stopped off at Bembridge on the Isle of Wight before continuing on to Briare Chatillon (LFEI) just to break the journey up. At Briare pre-flight. Weather should be quite good today. I'm sure the blue taildragger was at Bembridge before I set off! Cruising along at about 5500, cloudbase just above, shouldn't be a problem. If the weather becomes a problem I can always stop and read the owner's handbook!! Chambery should be just over these hills.. Aha! Hello! Cleared to land rwy18 Slight crosswind from the west.... that's my story anyway! Come on turnoff point... There's that blue taildragger again... I'm being stalked! Thanks for viewing.
